Hémorragie de talents à l'hôpital public
Journal du Dimanche
L'hôpital était sa maison depuis vingt ans. Il l'aime encore mais la quitte. "C'est un divorce très douloureux", soupire ce professeur de chirurgie estimé. Pourquoi un mandarin au sommet de sa carrière dans un grand CHU envoie-t-il soudain tout valser? "C'est une accumulation : les coupes dans les effectifs de surveillantes qui désorganisent le service, les instrumentistes en intérim qui se succèdent au bloc opératoire au mépris de la sécurité, l'absence de kinés en fin de semaine pour faire lever les malades opérés la veille, la poussière accumulée sur mon bureau durant trois semaines parce que la femme de ménage est débordée."

Opinion: Health care hand washing: Solutions or scapegoats?
CBC News
On May 6, 2013, the WRHA announced their new hand hygiene campaign, acknowledging Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs) as the fourth leading cause of death for Canadians. Experts believe now that HAI is responsible for the deaths of up to 18,000 Canadians a year. Math on the back of a napkin would suggest one or two Manitobans dying daily.

91-year-old waits several hours for ambulance
CBC News
It was a frightening weekend for Garry Lynch and his family when his 91-year-old mother, Catherine Lynch, was forced to wait more than three hours for a Montreal ambulance, after having fallen and been stuck in a bathtub for 13 hours. "It was just a terrible situation," Garry Lynch told Mike Finnerty on CBC's Daybreak Montreal. "At that age there should be some compassion, showing some exception to the rules to send somebody quicker."

Breakthrough could prevent hip implant replacement
Medical Xpress
Hip implants rely on the normal functioning of bone cells to achieve fixation of the implant with the bone. However, small metal particles released from hip implants, due to friction between the moving surfaces, have been shown to be toxic to the surrounding bone cells. This causes the implant to loosen in the bone and often leads to patients requiring second surgery to replace the failed implant.

Philanthropists donate $10 million to Mount Sinai's orthopedics department
Toronto Star
A Toronto philanthropic power couple donated $10 million to Mount Sinai Hospital for orthopedic patients to “live their lives more fully.” The multimillion-dollar gift will improve access to much-needed hip and knee replacements for Ontarians, said Mount Sinai’s head of orthopedic surgery, Dr. David Backstein. One in five Canadians suffer from long-term pain and disability as a result of musculoskeletal disorders — and the number is climbing as the population ages.

La polyarthrite rhumatoïde, maladie invalidante dans les 5 années après le diagnostic
L'opinion
L'analphabétisme, l’automédication et le nomadisme médical font que les patients tardent à consulter un rhumatologue (sachant que tout retard est lourdement préjudiciable dans ce type de maladie), comme l’arthrose. La polyarthrite rhumatoide (PR) est le plus fréquent des rhumatismes inflammatoires. C’est une maladie inflammatoire chronique qui cible les articulations. Elle fait partie du groupe des maladies dites auto-immunes et systémiques.
